Rick Gerhardt :: Are the new heaven & earth an excuse for neglecting our planet?

  • “The logic of that seems dubious,” according to Rick Gerhardt, Biologist and Christian Apologist. Christian scholars have not always agreed about how literal verses promising a ‘new heaven and a new earth.’ So banking on those verses as a promise that we’ll get a new planet after we’ve worn this one out is unwise. The reasoning itself is also faulty. “If I were to tell my family that in a few years we’ll buy a new house, does that justify trashing the one we’re still living in?”
